Rochester News & Events
Gluten-Free Family Picnic: The Greater Rochester Celiac Support Group will host their annual Family Picnic on September 17 from 6-8 at St. Anne’s Church and I am in charge of organizing it! This is a pot-luck, so if you are interested in attending, please bring a gluten-free dish along with the recipe to share with others. You can RSVP to me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Victor native, Lori Boone, RD. has written a book called, “Powerful Plant-Based Superfoods.” This guide to superfoods such as, cacao, greens, and berries, includes recipes that showcase these ingredients and are all naturally vegan and gluten-free. You can buy the book on Amazon.com.
On Monday, September 16 the 10th annual Foodlink Festival of Food will take place in the Rochester Public Market from 6-9 pm. I attended this last year and had a great time. Although most food vendors can’t guarantee that items are safe from cross-contact, there are gluten-free goodies to try and a lot of wine and cider to taste. Tickets are $50 in advance and $60 at the door. All proceeds go to Foodlink.
The 15th annual International Celiac Disease Symposium is taking place September 22-25 in Chicago, IL. The conference will include scientific and clinical forums as well as social activities. Anyone can attend the clinical program events but the scientific forum is reserved for researches and those actively investigating celiac disease and gluten-sensitivity.
